BNSF and NS run their parallel lines from here east to WB Jct. at Carrollton as joint trackage, with BNSF dispatchers in control. Frequently, BNSF will park trains on its own Main 2 for various reasons, leaving Main 1 and Main 3 open for traffic. However, the NS Main 3 is slower and more curvy than the 70-mph BNSF mains, so when BNSF trains are occasionally routed to the NS track, crews sometimes claim that they've been placed in the "Penalty Box".
